common-sense plan to reduce the deficit by closing tax loopholes and cutting wasteful defense spending. here is the chart of the plan. there is $1.7 trillion in new revenue. the $1.7 trillion in spending cuts is still there. this looks like a much fairer chart than the current system, don't you think? and it's estimated to reduce the deficit by $3.3 trillion. remember, we're trying to hit $4 trillion. so we're getting closer. the plan ends tax loopholes for yachts and for jets. it reduces the corporate meal and entertainment deduction to 25%. you can't write off the whole dinner anymore. it ends fossil fuel subsidies for oil companies that are raking in massive profits. exxonmobil, you know what their profit was? $44 billion in 2012. the last thing they need right now is your tax dollars as subsidy. the balancing act also closes other pointless loopholes the rich take advantage of. we should point out mitt romney ran on a similar tax plan. his former running mate paul ryan should love the balancing act because it reduces the deficit. everyone inside the beltway considers mr. ryan just

national self-defense would seem to describe the case of anwar al awlaki. a citizen by virtue of his birth in new mexico in 1971. al awlaki has been linked through e-mails with major malik hasan, the army psychiatrist who allegedly killed 13 people at ft. hood in texas. he was also linked to the so-called underwear bomber who tried to blow up an airplane bound for detroit back on christmas in 2010. and faisal shaz ad. the guy who tried to set off a car bomb in times square in the spring of 2010. moreover, al awlaki had ties to at least two of the 9/11 hijackers. so what's a commander in chief to do when someone american by birth inspires others to kill innocent americans? we know that this commander in chief gave the order to take him out, which was done with a drone in yemen on september 30, 2011. president obama's decision reminds me of this story. in 1955 the israeli philosopher yisha leibovitz wrote a letter to david ben gurion, israel's first prime minister, in which he complained about innocent palestinians killed during israeli operations. ben gurion then replied, "i recei

even more. now, the "washington post" was on defense. basically, all statements by public figures are subject to scrutiny. the president made an unexpected claim. and for nearly a week the white house refused to back it up. but in the end, they concluded the issue is settled. not according to the white house press corps. these are some of the questions jay carney was asked during his media availability today. why release the photo now? was the president shooting skeet or trap? does he ever shoot weapons -- or did he ever shoot weapons before he was president? did he ever shoot weapons elsewhere? will you release photos of friends or family or guests? carney responded, "the fact is that the president was asked a question. he did not volunteer, but was a lifetime of supporting every gun ban, every gun control scheme imaginable. the washington press has a responsibility to ask the president tough questions about things affecting all americans. a photo of the president shooting skeet does not affect gun laws one bit. it only distracts from the major issues at hand. so the bottom line come

today. acting in self-defense is not an assassination. the other thing is, yes, the president has the authority and he can delegate to it other people in the chain of command. but what we do know is the president has been intimately involved in making all the decisions, at least, you know, every time that something comes to light, whether it's bin laden or al awlaki, he has been right up there doing it. so he is very much involved. >> but the administration makes it sounds like there is no innocent people being killed. on the other hand, the president is ready to pass gun control legislation in this country if we can save one life. but yet it just seems like this administration is very callous and liberals are being dumbed down by this saying it's okay, we're fighting terror when we're kill mortgage than one person around the world with drone attacks. what about that? >> well, again, i think there is collateral damage. and that's why this memo talks about the laws of war. before you use military force, you have to look at whether in fact it's justified and the possible collateral dama
